A federal judge recently approved an $8 million settlement between UPS and approximately 38,000 current and former California employees.
The workers, who were employed by UPS between Jan. 3, 2004, and March 10, 2009, alleged the company failed to provide meal and rest breaks in violation of the California Labor Code and did not pay terminated employees wages on a timely basis.
Judge Dean D. Pregerson of the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California conditionally certified two subclasses: one including 21,000 part-time “hub” workers who were denied meal breaks, and another of 29,000 former employees who were issued their final paychecks four or more days after they quit or one or more days after their discharge.
Pregerson preliminarily approved the settlement and appointed class representatives.
